From all over the world, we came to Simmons 
College for different reasons. Many of us 
began our college careers with the intention to 
grow as an individual and prepare for the job 

As four years of independence and responsibilities progressed, we 
formed a community, a Microcosm, of the world, where we were able 
to learn, gain experience, and mature. Most importantly we learned to 
learn from whatever opportunities that came along our paths. Each of 
us were able to contribute what we can to make changes and differ- 
ences and apply to it not only to ourselves and the Simmons commu- 
nity, but also to the world in general. 

A Microcosm, according to Webster's dictionary is anything that is 
a diminutive, representative world. We, as the Simmons community, 
are proud to be a Microcosm of the "real world". Our community has 
prepared us for what is to come. Most of us participated in groups, 
clubs, or liaisons; others may have internships, field work, or indepen- 
dent studies. Not only did we learn from our studies, we were also 
shaped by our friends, professors, and families in an unique urban 

Regardless of how we spend our time at Simmons, each of us will 
leave with our original goal achieved - to grow as an individual. 
For many of us however, we will depart Simmons College 
with much more than we had imagined. As we prepare 
to graduate, we will take with us the experience, our 
self-confidence, and our knowledge to make a differ- 
ence. Our Microcosm will enter the Macrocosm and we 
will once again be faced with establishing goals and 
facing challenges. Now we are ready, we have the abil- 
ity to make a world of difference.

FENWAY PARK, home of the 
Boston Red Sox. 

A Week in a Life of Dana 

Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, 
Dana Jo Spangler was raised in 
Cicero, a small town in Indiana. 
Coming to Boston four years ago 
was a major shock as it was her 
first time being away from home. 
She chose Simmons because 
she thought it would be a great 
opportunity to experience city life. 
It also gave her a chance to play 
basketball, and became captain of 
the team her sophomore year. A 
senior, Dana is studying to be a 
physical therapist, since she has 
always wanted to work in sports 
medicine. Even though her social 
life is limited due to her tough 
curriculum, she takes advantage 
of her rare free time by enjoying 
the company of her friends. One 
of her favorite tension breakers is 
playing a couple of games of Tetris 
on her computer. 

Going home to Indiana is a rare, 
but is a very special occasion be- 
cause she is very close to her par- 
ents and her older brother, who is 
also a senior in college. She has no 
specific plans for when she leaves 
Simmons except the usual: find a 
job, get married and start a family. 
Her philosophy is "I am wel- 
come to do anything that makes 
me happy. I live each day as it 
comes, as one cannot look too far 
into the future."

news of the world and the Simmons community 




Running in and out of the Student Activities center, 
wearing her blue Simmons sweat shirt, favorite blue plaid 
sweat pants, and her blonde hair in a ponytail is the way 
most members of the Simmons community will remember 
Melissa Bachelder. She is an extrodinary example of the 
dedication and service many seniors have added to the 
Simmons community. 

Melissa has experienced 
Simmons in many different ways. She 
is an advertising as well as an eco- 
nomics major and hopes to venture 
into the advertising copy writing field . 
In addition to having a double con- 
centration, Melissa is a tutor for the 
economics department. 

Melissa has made a difference in 
the Simmons community by becom- 
ing active throughout her four vears 
here at Simmons. Her past offices and 
activities include: Smith Hall President, Vice-president, and 
treasurer, Junior class president and Vice president, and 
Chair of the Big Sister/Little Sister Committee. Currently, 
she of president of the Senior class. As president, Melissa has 
enhanced the class with both academic programming and 
social events. 

Melissa's dedication to Simmons and her fellow 
peers have placed her among the many students at Simmons 
who make our community standout above the rest.

Racewalking has been a big 
part of Gretchen Eastler's life since 
she was nine years old. Eastler, a 
physical therapy major realized her 
Olympic dream could someday 
become a reality when she set her 
first national record in the 300 
meter when she was seventeen 
years old. 

The summer after she gradu- 
ated from high school, Eastler 
raced at the Junior World Track 
and Field Championships. Since 

then, she has raced each summer for the United States team. 
The United States team has traveled to countries such as 
Bulgaria, Jamaica, and Sweden that gave Eastler a world of 

Eastler says her next goal is to make the Senior National 
Team and compete, again, this summer. She would eventually 
like to race in the Olympics and says she would not stop 
walking until she reaches her dream. 

The Farmington, Maine native, is a cross country am- 
bassador, says she loves Simmons because of the wonderful 
people she has met while she has been a student here throe 
years ago. 




"You can make more friends in two months by 
becoming genuinely interested in other people 
than you can in two years by trying to get 
other people interested in you." -Dale Camigie

You do not have to be majoring in the Communications 
Department to know who Bob White is. Although he claims 
to be "just like everybody else," he's not. Not only does he 
look different, with his long hair and flowing beard that 
covers most of his face, but according to many students, he is 
more than just a professor, he is someone a student can feel 
comfortable with just sitting down and talking about the 
new heavy metal bands or recent movie releases. 

White has been at Simmons for twenty two years. Stu- 
dents, faculty, and the administration know White is teach- 
ing Communications Media, one of his most popular classes, 
when you hear music, especially Bohemian Rhapsody blar- 
ing out of C-103. He also teaches Video Production and 
Independent Study, which was originally set up in the Com- 
munications department so students could study certain 
things that were not originally offered at Simmons. Lately, 
the independent study has been focus- 
ing in on computer animation, some- 
thing White specializes in. 

White is also a faculty advisor for 
students, commuter organization, and 
the undergoing new radio station for 
Simmons, although he is very sup- 
portive of any organization on cam- 
pus. He is often found at the bake sales 
buying goodies to show that support. 
White also gets involved over the resi- 
dence campus by reading stories at 
Halloween and Christmas in the dorms 
at Tea on Fridays. 



To The Class of 1993: 

"What our idea may accomplish, however, will be determined by 
you young women." President Henry Lefavour opened Simmons 
College with those words. During all the changes that have taken place 
since in our College, those words hold true. Teaching does not take 
place except in the presence of learning, and in your time with us your 
success has been our success. 

When you leave Simmons this statement will be even more true. It 
is the professional development of our alumnae which really testifies to 
the value if their Simmons education. As you graduate you join a group 
of exceedingly accomplished women. Their presence is both a reassur- 
ance and a challenge. What they have done you can aspire to, but they 
have done a lot. 

I also hope that you have enjoyed your time here. These have been 
four interesting and challenging years in the history of our College and 
your class has contributed to many of the most positive changes we have 
made while you were here. We opened the Sports Center just in time to 
be of benefit to your class, improved our food service and expanded our 
social programs. 

The world you go out into is equally challenging, the tremendous 
changes in the politics of international affairs is more than matched by 
the increasing availability of that world. Simmons has become more 
international during your time here, and I hope that you will maintain 
that international interest through study and travel. The domestic 
economy is not equally exciting and yet Simmons graduates have a 
tradition a creating positions where, sometimes, there were no positions. 

Finally, I share the adventure of your leaving more than with any 
other class because I, too, will be leaving Simmons this year. Not 
graduating, but facing a new world, with new demands and challenges. 
I wish you all well.

Dear Members of the Class of 1993, 

As time passes, it will become increasingly difficult for you to remember 
the "Great Expectations" you had upon arrival at Simmons College. The 
Orientation Committee had selected that theme and the acorn as the logo for 
your class with the hope that each of you would prosper in this community 
by defining your potential and challenging yourself and the College to meet 
those expectations. 

And now as you leave the College, the Microcosm editors hope to define, 
through words and pictures, a "World of Difference." What an appropriate 
theme! Whether you define "world" as individual, as Simmons College, as 
Boston and Massachusetts, as our nation, or indeed the world, four years 
have seen phenomenal change. Each of you has been a participant in that 
change and more important each of you has, I hope, been encouraged to 
become leaders in tomorrow's "World of Difference". 

The challenges and expectations of our society seem at times overwhelm- 
ing. How can we possibly embrace the solutions of such issues as world 
hunger, environmental devastation, the federal deficit, racism, sexism, 
homophobia, drug abuse, violence, AIDS, homelessness, and illiteracy? 
How can we keep a sense of optimism that indeed there are solutions? 

The source of my own peace of mind is the confidence I have in each of 
you and in the education you received at Simmons College. Many if you 
will be assuming positions of leadership either in world of national organiza- 
tions, your professions, and/or your communities. And all of you will have 
personal interaction with friends, family, and colleagues. If you take to 
those relationships intelligence, tolerance, respect, ethical principles, confi- 
dence, and a sense of humor, plus your own unique skills, knowledge, and 
talents, you will affect positive change. You have done so at Simmons 
College and in our community your presence has made a "World of Differ- 

You have found your voices; we all look forward to hearing from you.

Have you often thought how nice it would be to have your 
mother here for comfort and support on those rotten days 
that you'd like to forget about? Well for most of us, that 
would be difficult. Our mothers are back home, with the rest 
of the family, but for Johanna Bloom, a senior majoring in 
International Relations and Political Science, the past four 
years have been a little different than most students. 

Bloom's mother is the head oi 
the Children's Literature Depart- 
ment here at Simmons. Johanna 
admits that, "at first I thought it 
would be awful to have my mom at 
school with me, I thought that she 
would be checking up on me," but 
now realizes that her mom did noth- 
ing of the sort, instead she let Johanna 
be her own person. 

"It's been nice having my mother 
around. We can have lunch together, 
and when I have a serious problem. 
she's here." Not only is she a mother 
to Johanna, Mrs. Bloom is a mom to almost all her friends. 
"At one point or another, most all mv friends have talked to 
her, and /or asked her for advice," said Bloom. 

What makes this mother/daughter relationship unique is 
that Mrs. Bloom is an alumna of Simmons College. She is 
proud to have her daughter follow in her footsteps.

several sea nymphs whose singing lured sailors to their 
death in rocky coasts 2. seductive women 3. the hottest a 
cappella singing group on Simmons campus! 

The Sirens, Simmons College's hottest new a cappella 
group, was formed in the fall of 1989 by seven women who 
wanted to do more than just sing with a piano. Thus, Sirens 
was born: a women's a cappella group with the intentions 
to sing, entertain and enjoy all types of music. 

To date, the Sirens have performed with men's a cappella 
groups such as Tufts' Beezlebubs, Yale's Baker's Dozen, 
and the co-ed Harvard Opportunes, to name a few. In 
addition, the Sirens have been invited to sing in a cappella 
jamborees at Bowdoin College, Wheaton College, and in 
Boston University's Beanpot jam. 

The Sirens have been asked in numerous occasions to 
sing for Simmons functions as well as off-campus events 
such as the presidents's 1899 Club dinner at the Ritz- 
Carlton, Christmas parties, Admissions events, and at 
Faneuil Hall at Christmas time. 

In its forth year the group hopes to continue as strong as 
its been and thanks the Simmons community for its much- 
appreciated support.

Every academic department at Simmons has 
an organization known as a liaison, which is 
comprised of students interested or concen- 
trating in that department. One of the main 
purposes of liaisons is to ensure that students 
are satisfied with their courses and /or in- 
structor. They conduct evaluations of even 
course offered by each department. 

In addition, liaison members also plan educa- 
tional and social functions to bring students 
and faculty together, thus helping to build a 
friendly, open feeling among members of the 
Simmons community.

The seven dorms along 

Brookline Avenue and Pilgrim 
Road have their own person- 
ality. But Arnold Hall has al- 
ways had the reputation of a 
party dorm. There were never 
parties in Arnold, but it is the 
women in Arnold that knows 
how to have fun. 
This year there were changes beyond Arnold women's 
control. Because the administration recognized the women 
of Arnold Hall as fun and spirited, they choose to house 
L.I.F.E. men in the first two floors of Arnold Hall. TheL.I.F.E. 
students were also housed in Simmons Hall. This decision 
made by the administration made many Simmons student: 
angry. Women were more angry about the fact that students 
were not asked about the issue before the decision was made. 
Last May, there was a rally protesting the decision and for 
women's rights. 

The women in Arnold learned to live with them whether 
they like it or not. There are still angry women in Arnold but 
there are some that are taking advantage of this situation. 
Some were interested in their culture, many partied with 
them, and most received help in Spanish from them. 

According to Arnold Hall residents, there were inevitable 
problems. The most damaging problem was that the spirit of 
Arnold Hall diminished greatly. The lack of women and the 
lack of freshmen prevented the women to bond as they did 
in the past. The women of Arnold are still trying to tight and 
uphold their reputation. 

"A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle" - Gloria Steinman & U2 

"...and we were 40 women living like 40 fish with 41 bicycles 
and of the women in Arnold Hall remain as they have always 
been and endure to be."

Simmons College is filled with 
countless diverse groups. Many 
languages and many cultures 
intergrade at Simmons. Women 
come from all corners of the wor 
to be educated here. But the one 
place a visitor can find all of ther 
together is the Commuter Loung 
Commuters at Simmons come 
from all around the Boston area, 
but they don't limit themselves t< 
befriending only those close to 
them. Everyone is welcome into 
the pleasant, somewhat mad woi 
of the commuters. 
A commuter is easy to spot. 
Always on the move, a commute 
got lots to say and not very mud 
time to say it, usually racing to 
class or to catch a train. And wht 
they finally do get to slow down, 
thev can be found in groups 
studies or heated talks in the 
lounge. And a commuter doesn't 
care who you are. If you've got 
something to contribute, or even 
vou just want to listen in, any on 
is welcome into their circle. 
Thev are a fast-paced, jovial bun< 
and a commuter can always be 
counted on as a friend. Commut- 
ing life at Simmons is a great 


You would often find her at the Sports Center or out 
on the Windsor Field kicking a ball. A senior, Rachel 
Gladstone, has been playing soccer for the Simmons Col- 
lege team for four years. Now, as the co-captain of the 
team for the second year, Gladstone says she hopes she 
and her teammates were able to boost Simmons' reputa- 
tion during those four years. "I hope I've used my voice 
in a positive way to hopefully bring about some needed 
changes, and I hope I've made soccer fun for the people I've 
spent the last four years with." said Gladstone. 

Not only is she a soccer player, she has been able to 
maintain her studies here at Simmons. Gladstone, a edu- 
cation major made a difference 
on the soccer field while 
Simmons has made a difference 
on her. She said that she has 
become more self-assured and 
more self confident since she 
came to Simmons. "I've learned 
a lot about the different people, 
places, and things that I might 
have never been exposed to if I 
weren't at Simmons", said

As the world continues to change, so does the community 
of Simmons College. After twenty years of dedication to 
Simmons College, President William J. Holmes will be leav- 
ing the Simmons community to retire. Under the direction of 
President Holmes, changes have been instituted which have 
effected the Simmons Community in a variety of ways. 

Over the past twenty years the 
Park Science Center has been built, 
which provided a place to Simmons 
enhance its growing science depart- 
ments. The Sports for Simmons cam- 
paign was launched which in part 
funded the building of the Sports Cen- 
ter. Both the Science Center and the 
Sports Center, had profound effects on 
education and unification of the stu- 
dent body. Finally, one of the most 
impressive changes during Holmes 
term, was the growth of the graduate 
programs and the notion of Simmons 
College as a small university rather than a small college. 

On May 16, 1993, as Simmons College graduates another 
class of seniors, the college will also be saying good-bye to a 
dedicated President. Throughout his twentv years of ser- 
vice, President Holmes, has instituted many changes and 
many new programs for the Simmons Community. As 
Simmons steps into the future it will continue to change with 
the times, however, the instrumental changes and improve- 
ments, made over the past two decades under the direction 
of William J. Holmes will be remembered.

Simmons College 300 The Fenway Boston Volume 70 Number 14 1992-1993 

Jean Dowdall appointed first 
woman president of Simmons 

By Michelle Purdum 

Editorial Staff 

While Simmons students were anx- 
iously studying for finals last semester, 
the Simmons Corporation overwhelm- 
ingly voted in a new president of the 

Jean Dowdall. the appointee, will 
begin her tenure in July as Simmons' 
fifth president and, judging from com- 
munity response, her reception will be 
warm and welcome. 

Chair of the Corporation Jean 
Warburg summed up Corporation mem- 
bers' opinions of the decision when she 
said of Dowdall, "[She] will energize 
the community and lead Simmons into 
the twenty-first century with warmth, 
wit, and wisdom." 

Even the person on whose desk 
Dowdall will be putting her family pic- 
tures come July is optimistic about her 
capabilities. President William Holmes 
said that Dowdall "certainly brings ap- 
propriate experience to the position" 
and "has a clear sense of how a college 

Dowdall's Dec. 14 appointment is 
the culmination of a nine-month search 
process conducted by a committee com- 
prised of Corporation members, stu- 
dents, faculty, and staff, representing a 
wide variety of College interests. This 
group received nominations, pored over 
hundreds of resumes and dossiers, in- 
terviewed nominees and, ultimately, 
made its unanimous recommendation 
to the Corporation. 

According to Committee Chair 
Linda Paresky, Dowdall "has the lead- 
ership capacity to help Simmons un- 
leash its great potential." 

In a conversation with Paresky, the 
search consultant. Dr. Christine Young, 
relayed her satisfaction with Dowdall. 
"As a consultant, you can hope for a 
good process, you can hope for good 
people." said Young. "But to get all 
three was very special." 

Vice President Carol Leary, who is 
still uncertain of her position in the 
Dowdall administration, also partici- 
pated in the search process. She empha- 
sized her choice based on addressing 
the needs of Simmons a a whole, with a 
vision of growth. 

"I think Dr. Dowdall has many of 
the ideals that the community estab- 
lished in the planning process for the 
future of Simmons College." 

Deborah DiBiase, SGA president 
and one of the student members of the 
search committee said that the idea of 
having a female president was an inspi- 
ration to students. She compared her 
perception to peoples' feelings about 
Dowdall to national sentiment regard- 
ing the recent change over to the Clinton 

"We've finally got somebody we 
care about and who we think cares about 
us and will represent how we feel and 
think," said DiBiase, adding, "Without 
even becoming part of the administra- 
tion yet, she is the essence of Simmons." 

A random survey of Simmons stu- 
dents revealed that, while some stu- 
dents remain surprisingly unaware of 
Dowdall's imminent arrival and lack 
information about her particular quali- 
fications, many share DiBiase's senti- 

"I think it's a good that we finally 
have a woman president," said fresh- 
man Diana Hu. "It's a women's college, 
we should have a woman (president)." 

To others, capability was the more 
relevant issue. While freshwoman Neith 
Preston was "really surprised that 
(Simmons) didn't have a woman presi- 
dent before," she said that she doesn't 
believe gender is the most important 

"It's the person that gets the job 
done'" said Preston. 

Sophomore Katherine Leonard 
agreed, saying, "I think it's important to 
know what she can do for us." Leonard 

Simmons first female president, Dr. Jean A. Dowdall 

expressed an interest in learning more 
about Dowdall's views on women's is- 
sues and the scope of her future goals 
for Simmons. 

Many others among Simmons' fac- 
ulty and staff said they regretted not 
having had the opportunity to meet 
Dowdall, as they had been away or too 
busy when she visited the campus. The 
consensus offered by these people was, 
however, was that they were impressed 
and satisfied with the comments of their 
colleagues who had met with Dowdall. 

Robert Stueart, Dean of the Gradu- 
ate School of Library and Information 
Science, said that he thinks the decision 
to have Dowdall as Simmons' next presi- 
dent was "very good." 

"I'm hoping of course, that she has 
the broad perspective of graduate edu- 
cation as well as undergraduate educa- 
tion ," said Stueart, speaking about the 
College's growing graduate student 
population. "It's important to have some- 
one in that position who understands 

graduate education. I believe that sht 
has that perspective." 

Regarding the fact that Dowdall wil 
be Simmons' first woman president 
one staff member said that there was nc 
doubt in his mind that the appointed 
would be female. 

"It was obvious that there had to be 
a woman, or there would have been i 
rebellion, probably," said Herb Levine 
senior programming analyst for Com 
puter Facilities. "It was the proper thing 
to do, having a woman at a woman'. 1 

Cautious optimism is the key phrase 
in describing the overall reactions 01 
Simmons community members tcj 
Dowdall's appointment. Respondent^ 
said they want to believe that the out- 
come will be addressed, but are temper-!

"It's right for me personally. It's time," Morocco 
«aid. She said she also feels the decision is right for 
>immons. "The new president can start with fresh 
idministration," she said. 

Coghlan said, "It's time for my retirement. I'll be

lormal time to retire." 

Morocco was originally hired for a one-year tem- 
wrary position in 1 970 and stayed on to love Simmons 
ind what it means to her. "It's a place I never thought 
M love. Boy, was I surprised," she said.

Dean of the College Charlotte Morocco 

President Holmes and Vice President Carol Leary 
viewed the deans' decisions to retire as very sad. but 
added that the women have each had a full and satis- 
fying careers at Simmons, that it's their decision to 
move on, and that they wish them well. 

There are no present plans to fill the position that 
will be vacant in June. According to Leary. the filling 
of the positions hasn't been discussed yet since it's so 
early in the year. 

According to Morocco, if the Corporation offers a 
candidate the presidential position in January, there 
will be plenty of time to fill the position of the Dean of 
the College before the fall semester. 

Leary said, "When people leave Simmons, noth- 
ing is usually done until the spring." 

Before she leaves her position in June, Morocco 
says she mostly just wants to have a good last year and 
leave Simmons with a good feeling. "The President 
and I just want to have a good time [with our last 
year]," she said. "I hope it's a positive year." 

She also stated that as she leaves, she is "optimistic 
about Simmons' future." She said she thinks Simmons 
is a great institution, and said, "I have a feeling of 
excitement about where this place is going." 

Coghlan also said she felt good about Simmons, 
and is very excited about the prospect of a new 
president. "I'm looking forward to the changes coming 
to Simmons." 

Morocco's plans for the future are unclear. "As a 
single woman, I'm free to go where I want. I'm not 
really worried about it." Although she's not positive 
about what she'll be doing a year from now, she did say 
she will be leaving the Boston area. "I don't have any 
family here," Morocco said. 

Coghlan has more specific plans. As Chairman of 
the Board of Milton Hospital from 1980-1986. she 
now plans on writing a book on the history of the 
hospital. "It's time for somebody to do it." 

Morocco's advice to an incoming dean would be. 

Dean of Sciences Anne Coghlan 

"In this job. you have to love what you are doing, the 
bad with the good." 

She said she believes in the students at Simmons. 
"I love who comes to school here." she -aid. and 
advised a new dean to. "Get direction from the stu- 
dents, they'll help you do the job." 

As a 1948 Simmons graduate. Coghlan agrees 
with Morocco. "The students are the kej . 

Finally. Morocco commented. I hope it - a posi- 
tive year. I have a serious spot in m> heart for this 

With a smile on her face. Morocco -aid. Its time

Goodbye Bush, 
Hello Clinton ! ! 

By Kristin Heineman 

Editorial Staff 

After an arduous campaign marked by hos- 
tility, negativity, and character assassinations, 
Gov. Bill Clinton of Arkansas defeated Incum- 
bent President George Bush in a landslide elec- 
toral victory Tuesday night to become the 42nd 
president of the United States. 

Winning 370 of 558 electoral votes, giving 
him more than the 270 needed to win, Clinton 
swept the Northeast states, as well as California, 
New York, and Ohio, all states with large elec- 
toral shares. Clinton won 32 of the 50 states, as 
well as Washington D.C.. Bush won 18, including 
Florida and Texas. Texas billionaire Perot won 
no electoral votes. 

Regarding popular votes, Clinton finishes 
with 43,654,863 (43%), Bush with 38,088,896 (38%), 
and Perot with 19,203,583 (19%), according to the 
Boston Globe's city desk. 

Clinton's win Tuesday ended 12 years of Re- 
publican rule in the White House; the last Demo- 
crat in the Oval Office was Jimmy Carter, who 
was defeated in 1980 by Ronald Reagan. Here in 
Massachusetts, Clinton received roughly 53 per- 
cent of the popular vote, not surprisingly consid- 
ering the state's voting history. 

Clinton, in his acceptance speech, attributed 
his victory to virtually everyone he knew, from 
his family to his campaign staff to the voters. He 
also put emphasis on his running mate, Sen. Al 
Gore, who "Got him where he was today." Clinton 
also commended his see Clinton, p. 12 

Is Simmons 

Really a 

Co-Ed College? 

By Kassie Kimbriel 
Staff Writer 

There is nothing to prevent Simmons from 
awarding undergraduate degrees to men, ac- 
cording to the Simmons Foundation and Char- 
ter, The charter, until 1944 stated that Simmons 
was "an institution in which instruction might be 
given to women in such branches of art, science, 
and industry as would best enable the scholars to 
acquire an independent livelihood (Chapter 395, 
Acts of 1899)." 

In 1945, however, a certificate of change of 
purpose in the charter was approved, granting 
Simmons the right to award honorary degrees 
and undergraduate degrees to men. The change 
also eliminated the word "women" from the origi- 
nal charter, replacing it with "persons." The 
amended charter now reads: "The purpose of 
such corporation shall be to furnish to persons 
instructions and training in such branches of art, 
science, and industry as may be serviceable in 
enabling them to acquire a livelihood (Chapter 
189, Section 10)." 

According to an issue of The Simmons News 
dated May 22, 1947, seven male candidates re- 
ceived bachelor's degrees from the School of 
Library Science on June 9, 1947, only two years 
after Simmons was granted the right to award 
degrees to men. According to information ob- 
tained from Archives, those seven men are the 
only men who have received undergraduate de- 
grees to date. 

Registrar Donna Dolan said there are 13 men 
enrolled in undergraduate classes at Simmons 
this semester. Nine of the men, she said, are

Former Corporation member convicted in junk-bond scandal 

Ostrander free pending two-month prison sentence appeal 

By Kristin Heineman 

Editorial Staff 

Patricia Ostrander, a former member of the 
Simmons Corporation, was recently sentenced 
to two months in prison and ordered to pay 
$100,000 in fines after being convicted in July for 
taking a bribe from junk-bond king Michael 
Milken, according to The Boston Globe. The fed- 
eral judge who sentenced her, who has a reputa- 
tion for handing out harsh sentences for white- 
collar crime, according to the Globe, stayed the 
sentence until after Ostrander's attorneys filed 


an appeal. 

Ostrander was indicted last October on 
charges that she accepted kickbacks from Milken's 
MacPherson Investment Partners. According 
topast Globe and Simmons News articles, Ostrander 
accepted payment for buying and selling Drexel 
Burnham Lambert, Inc. junk bonds for her cus- 

It was alleged that Ostrander, a Brookline 
resident, made more than $750,000 from interest 
in the special fund in 1986 and 1987. Federal 
prosecutors also charged that Ostrander was one 
of Milken's most loyal customers for his infa- 
mous junk bonds. 

Ostrander, 53, who faced a maximum of 13 
years in jail and a $750,000, was quoted in The 
Globe by her attorney Harry Manion as being 
"extremely excited," about the decision. 

'"We're not exactly partying," said Manion 
last Tuesday after the decision was made. "But 
I'm going to sleep a lot better tonight than I did 
last night,'" Ostrander was reportedly "extremely 

Ostrander and her attorney have reason to be 
happy. Under federal rules, "sentences are [cus- 
tomarily] executed immediately unless a finding 
is made that an appeal could reverse the convic- 
tion, "according to the Globe article. But Ostrand-

Princess of Thailand paying 
royal visit to Simmons today 

By Michelle Purdum 

Editorial Staff 

Royalty will pay a visit to 
Mmmons today in the form of her 
^oyal Highness Princess Maha 
IhakriSirindhorn of Thailand, who 
s coming to witness the celebra- 
:ions commemorating the 100th 
birthday of her grandfather, His 
^oyal Highness Prince Mahidol of 
3ongkla, a 1 928 graduate of Harvard 
Medical School. Festivities at both 
Simmons and Harvard begin with 
:oday's visit to Simmons and con- 
tinue through Saturday, conclud- 
ing with a dedication ceremony at 
Harvard Saturday. 

It was while studying at Harvard 
[that the Prince met and married Prin- 
Icess Sirindhorn's grandmother, Her 
'Royal Highness Somdej Phra Sri 
iNakarindra Boromarajajonnani, 
Thailand's current Princess Mother, 
|who later studied at Simmons. 

Thai students at Simmons ex- 
pressed excitement about the un- 
ending visit. Junior Kritima 
Bulsook said that it is an honor for 
Simmons to receive the Princess, 
and a special opportunity for stu- 
dents from Thailand to meet a mem 

ber of the royal family. "It's great 
that she's coming here. It's hard to 
get so close to her in Bangkok," said 

Junior Mona Siwarungsan 
agreed. "In Thailand we're not al- 
lowed to make eye contact with her," 
she said. "We're not allowed to even 
face her." During today's visit, these 
students will greet the Princess upon 
her arrival, and will have many 
chances to meet with her person- 
ally. Siwarungsan's relatives are al- 
ready jealous that she may be the 
only family member ever to meet 
royalty, and she plans to brag a little 
when she returns home. "You're 
going to remember it for your whole 
life," she said. 

According to Vice President 
Carol Leary, the Princess will leave 
a meeting with Lt. Gov. A. Paul 
Cellucciat the State House to arrive 
here by noon today. She will enter 
through the 300 The Fenway en- 
trance, through an honor guard of 
Simmons Thai students, and will be 
introduced to some of the Simmons 
faculty and staff who were instru- 
mental in preparing for her visit. 
She will then proceed to the Fens for 
an honorary luncheon. She will then 

officially open an exhibit honoring 
the Princess Mother, showing in the 
Special Functions Room today and 
tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Of the nearly 200 people who 
will attend the luncheon, some dig- 
nitaries include the U.S. Ambassa- 
dor to the Thailand, the Thai Am- 
bassador to the U.S., the Thai Am- 
bassador to Canada, the Thai Am- 
bassador to Mexico, the Minister of 
Education from Thailand, the Min- 
ister of Foreign Affairs, the Deputy 
Secretary for Public Health, the 
President of Mahidol University in 
Thailand, the President of 
Chulalongkorn University, a group 
of Thai doctors, and 40 members of 
the Thai Nurses' Association. 

Due to the status of the visitors, 
security will be an issue. Manager 
of Security Gayla Feagin said that 
extra security will be hired for to- 
day, and Leary said that the Prin- 
cess will also be traveling with her 
security force. The Fens Cafeteria 
will be closed until 4 p.m. to accom- 
modate the party, and The Fenwav 
will be closed so the Princess' lim- 
ousine can deliver her and pick her 
up unhampered by local traffic.

Dorm to be taken off-line for L.I.F.E students 

By Laura Moreschi Contributing Reporter 

A committee that has explored housing options for L.I.F.E. students has decided that the best way to solve 
problematic living situations is to take a dorm off-line, according to Shellie Broadlev, Arnold Hall president and 
one of the four students in the committee. 

While the committee does not have the final say, they make recommendations to President Holmes, who will 
make the final decision. 

"That dorm will be essentially off-line," said Broadlev. They will create a co-ed international house. Though the 
residents would be primarily L.I.F.E. students, Simmons women would have the opportunity to live there if they 
like. Marcus Buckley, business manager and head of the committee said "there are a number of our women who 
have expresses a pretty serious interest in living in [an international] house." 

The committee has not yet decided which dorm will be chosen. There are many factors to consider and the 
choices have been narrowed down to Morse, Mesick, Arnold, and Dix based on structural qualifications alone. 

The results of an informal poll that Broadlev took of the women in Arnold was "overwhelmingly negath e 
showing, she said, that having L.I.F.E. students integrated with another dorms breaks apart the community at the 

There seems to be no debate over whether or not the program will be here next year. Buckley said that it is a 
"self-perpetuating contract [that] can be terminated with proper notice by either part. 1 ' 

When asked if he foresaw any problems with the contract (which automatically continues unless otherwise 
decided), he has had about the L.I.F.E. program he "didn't hear anybody say that [Simmons] should get out of the 

Buckley recognizes the "serious issues regarding the living conditions." but added that the advantages the 
program brings to Simmons far out weigh the disadvantages and he's optimistic that the problems on the residence 
campus will be solved. J

Saddam Hussein is alive and well 
and living in Bagdad according 
to most accounts. The Mideast 
War ended in February, 1991. 
Since that day, Ex President 
George Bush has urged the down- 
fall of the 55 year old leader. But 
within Iraq, Saddam Hussein ap- 
pears to have grown only stron- 
ger since his troops were forced 
out of Kuwait. However, he lives 
under a constant threat by Iraqi 
opposition leaders and a host of 
other enemies. It was because of 
this fear of assassination that he 
reorganized his personal body- 
guard corps and appointed his 
youngest son, Qusai, as chief of 
presidential security. 

Civil war spread across Yugoslavia, a nation of six republics and two provinces that had been plagued for 
centuries by historic ethic, religious and economic differences. Nationalist, anti-Communist parties won 
elections in 1 991 in all republics excepts Serbia and Montenegro. Then Croatia and its neighbor Slovenia declared 
their independence. 


Current Events 


in 1991 Boris Yeltsin was elected president of the Russian 
Federation. One of his top priorities was economic reform. But 
the gloomy economic condition reflected thegravedifficulties he 
and his government faced in trying to build a market economy on 
the ruins of the failed Soviet Communist system. While attempt- 
ing to establish economic and political ties abroad, Yeltsin's 
reforms at home increased prices by as much as 1500 percent 
during the first part on 1992. And many Russians felt that the 
reforms had damaged their living standard significantly. 

In early 1992, Boutros Boutros-Ghali became the world's top 
diplomat - the secretary General of the United Nations. 

The prices on the Tokyo Stock Exchange once seamed so invul- 
nerable to the laws of gravity that they came to svmbolize Japan's 
meteoric rise as the dominant world economic power. When the 
Nikkei Stock Average, the main index of the Tokvo Stock Ex- 
change, began slipping in 1990, economists said the weakening 
financial markets had little to do with Japan s "real" economv. 
which was still going strong. In 1992, thev sav that not only does 
the Nikkei's weakness reflect a return to realitv, but its fall could 
threaten Japan's economic health.

When Rodney King was stopped 
by the police on a Los Angeles 
freewav, police say he resisted 
them and was beaten. Someone 
videotaped the melee and re- 
leased the tape to local television 
stations. It received national at- 
tention, and four white officers 
were charged in the beating of 
King, who was black. But when a 
jury found the officers innocent 
of anv wrong doing, three davs 
of rioting hits Los Angeles! When 
it ended, 52 people were dead, 
2383 were injured, 18,807 were 
arrested, and the amount of prop- 
erty damage was estimated to be 
S785 million. 



Unemployment was one of the ma- 
jor issue during the presidential 
campaign. The unemployment rate 
had risen from 5.2 %, when Presi- 
dent Bush took office in 1988, to 
over 7% on Election Day, 1992. That 
meant 9.7 million Americans were 
out of work. And according to La- 
bor Department projections, there 
will be 30 % more college gradu- 
ates than college level jobs from 
now until 2005. 

The Environmental Protection Agency issued rules aimed at 
curbing industrial air pollution. The new rules outlined when 
businesses must obtain state pollution control permits under 
the Clean Air Act. Environmental groups, such as the Sierra 
Club, lead the charge against polluters. The Clean Air Act 
requires businesses to meet new clean air requirements by 
reducing toxic emissions and releases that contribute to smog. 
Under the rule, states issue pollution control permits, and the 
EPA monitors state programs to make certain they comply 
with federal rules. 

When George Bush's campaign for the presi 
dency began to falter, he turned to his longtim 
friend James A. Baker III for help. Baker too 
leave from his duties as Secretary of State anc 
join the re-election campaign to get it back or 
track. Baker was repeating the role he performec 
in 1988, when he quit as President Reagan's treal 
sun' secretary to run then - Vice President Bush': 
campaign. He travels little with the Ex-President 
preferring to stage - manage events from ths 
White House. 


Current Events 


Ex-President George Bush and his running mate, Dan 
Quayle, were the incumbents. The challengers were 
Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton and Tennessee Senator. 
Al Gore as his running mate. And then there was Ross 
Perot, the on-again, off again independent candidate. 
Bush kept Qualye as his running mate in 1992, the two 
arrived at the GOP convention in Houston as underdogs 
to the Clinton/Gore ticket. During the GOP convention, 
the impression the Bush strategists sought to convey was 
that president was the true agent of change and the 
Clinton was slick and unreliable. For the Democrats, the 
economy - and Bush's perceived mishandling of it - 
remained the main message that they hammered again 
and again. After the Democratic convention in Xew York 
City, the Clinton/Gore ticket was far ahead in the polls. 

The wives of the Democratic 
candidates, Hillary Clinton 
and Tipper Gore, were verv 
active in the campaign - Mrs.

We have given you roots,

The people on our 
planet are not 
standing in a single 
line. Look closely. 
Everyone is really 
standing in a circle, 
holding hands, 
whatever you give 
to the person standing 
next to you, 
it eventually comes 
back to you.

To my first college buddies 

I just want to thank you for the encouragement and 
friendship that you have given me the past four 

Always remember the bowl, bad movies (obsessive 
love), the night of the Daves, and the veranda. 

I love you guys. H 



Good Luck

What aWorld 

Hi Everyone, 

It has been my most hectic year in college, yet it was 
also my most fulfilling year thus far. I want to thank 
Simmons College for giving me such a great opportu- 
nity to produce this yearbook. This experience will be 
with me forever. 

To the class of 1993, it was a pleasure to be able to 
give you this unreplaceable book. Not only is this your 
yearbook, it is also MY yearbook. I hope you are happy 
with what I was able to offer you and I hope I was able 
to show you how each individual can make a difference. 
You have survived the Microcosm world at Simmons, 
now I have faith you can make a world of difference in 
the real world. 

I want to thank Student Activities for their guidance 
for we, Microcosm do not have an in-campus advisor. 
To Tom Keeley, our advisor and publishing representa- 
tive, thank you for your guidance, support, encourage- 
ment, understanding, and patience. I would also like to 
recognize the registrars office, Al at the copy center, and 
the mailroom for their patience and help. 

To all those who stuck with me throughout the year, 
your dedication is greatly appreciated. Thanks to all my 
friends who beared with me through all those sleepless 
nights. A special thanks to Sarah Furbush who would 
always volunteer her time whenever I needed help. 

This book has made a world of difference to me. 
Thanks again everybody!! 

S* ) Yours truly,
